Children, Food, and Life: What is the loveliest thing a child has ever said to you?

You know why


clowns actually originated in egypt聽to entertain royalty- they wore weird masks and imitated gods. 聽there were also clowns in ancient china, greece, and italy. it wasn鈥檛 鈥渂lack face and then switched to white face鈥 like i saw in the notes鈥 the clown white paint was invented in 1801.聽
the big, red nose is associated with alcoholism/being drunk (heavy alcohol usage can lead to severe rosacea and swelling of the nose), because drunkards in ye olde times were seen as fun for the whole family. the overlined lips create an exaggerated smile). curly or big hair was seen as whimsical and fun, as was a lack of hair (if you look up聽鈥榲intage clowns鈥, you鈥檒l see their hair is puffed out to the sides or upwards. nowadays, people probably wear afros because they鈥檙e cheap, and don鈥檛 involve lots of styling.聽
i am passionate about clowns
